River Edge, New Jersey

Assisted Living

An assisted living community is a residential living community which offers support, supervision, and care to healthy individuals who are not in need of skilled nursing services. The services provided often involve assistance with activities of daily living. Inhabitants may be kept under monitoring and assessment. Under certain circumstances, communities may offer respite, hospice, or "aging in place". In New Jersey, the annual median cost for an assisted living community is around $45,000 . The state of New Jersey has specific rules associated with this kind of community. Department of Health and Senior Services supervises this community type. Public assistance is available through 1115 Demonstration Waiver program--Managed Long-Term Services and Supports. This community has a number of provisions concerning food and diet which include prepare meals and snacks based on the Food and Nutrition board's recommended dietary allowances, provide three meals a day, and maintain a standard of food preparation that meets the needs of residents. Before a resident is accepted, they must go through a service plan screening to ensure their needs are going to be met.
